Steel is Certified to Weather the Storm
Vermont experiences a wide variety of severe weather events during the average year. These dangerous weather events include tornadoes, flooding, severe winter storms, blizzards, thunderstorms, and even droughts. In fact, there are very few natural disasters and weather hazards that Vermont doesn’t experience.
This means that anyone living in Vermont should be prepared for all kinds of severe weather. Your homes and businesses must be able to withstand gale-force winds that are greater than seventy-five miles per hour and torrential rains that would wash away anything in their path. These kinds of pressures are too much for the average wooden building to withstand. That is why so many people in Vermont choose to invest in strong steel buildings. Steel structures are engineered to withstand high winds and heavy precipitation. In fact, all of the prefab metal buildings designed by American Metal Buildings are made to meet the requirements for your specific region, ensuring that your building will stand firm no matter what.
Custom metal buildings from American Metal Buildings also stand tall in Vermont’s most common severe weather: snow. Snow accumulates fast in this northern state, and accumulated snow is extremely heavy. Imagine how much force a single snowstorm puts on an average roof. Traditional wooden roofs regularly fail to hold up to this weight and collapse, causing untold amounts of damage. But that’s not a problem for cold, hardened steel! Metal buildings from American Metal Buildings all come with snow load certifications that ensure they can withstand a specific amount of pressure caused by accumulated snow.
